Lest we forget

Students and staff complete their cycle fundraising just before the end of term and attended along with Mr Barron our Headmaster the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Belgium.

Mr Murphy the schools history teacher thanked all the staff and students of the school for their fundraising efforts for the British Legion and Help for Heroes having raised hundreds of pounds which will now be spent helping both the families and the soldiers who have left the military in recent years or who are still serving.

The ceremony was attended by local dignitaries and some interviews were recorded for the BBC. We are incredibly proud of our students and staff that made such a long and worthwhile trip to remember those that fell at the Battle of the Somme.

Please see our Gravesend Remembrance Photos as well as those taken in Belgium as well here
